AMATS is looking for applicants for seats on the AMATS Citizens Advisory Committee

They are trying to look beyond the normal transportation community so they have more of a diversity of voices on the committee, particularly from people with social services backgrounds or from underrepresented populations. The current vacancies are in Eagle River/Chugiak, Midtown, and South Anchorage.

RECRUITMENT

AMATS is seeking volunteers to fill three (3) vacant positions on the Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC). This is not technical committee and no transportation related experience is required. Individuals residing in the following Assembly Districts are encouraged to apply:

  • District 2: Eagle River/Chugiak
  • District 4: Midtown
  • District 6: South Anchorage

ABOUT THE COMMITTEE

The CAC consists of 11 members, with 6 of those members being appointed to fill a seat representing each of the Assembly districts within the Municipality of Anchorage. Committee members serve a term of three (3) years beginning on February 15 of the year of appointment and shall expire on February 14 the year their term expires. They may be reappointed one time. The other five (5) members of the committee consist of one member each representing the Federation of Community Councils, the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce, the Chugiak-Eagle River Chamber of Commerce, the Municipal Planning and Zoning Commission and Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson (JBER).

MEMBERSHIP QUALIFICATIONS

The AMATS Policy Committee encourages that membership on the CAC reflect diversity with regard to ethnicity, profession, and geographic location, and shall consider representation from academia, youth groups, and/or senior groups. CAC membership should reflect a broad cross-section of local residents with an interest in developing an efficient, safe and cost- effective transportation system. Additionally, the CAC welcomes and encourages participation by persons with disabilities, women, and minorities.

Please submit the following application if you are interested in applying http://www.muni.org/Departments/OCPD/Planning/AMATS/Documents/2015%20Docs/CAC_Recruitment/CAC_Application.pdf
